The Happiness Curve
Jonathan Rauch (BLOOMSBURY)
This is a fascinating insight into why our lives are pre-destined to get better as we age. Having experienced his own mid-life slump, despite personal and career success, Rauch began researching happiness and has created a compelling case. He backs up his personal story with statistics and studies and explains why life tends to feel better after 50. The ‘happiness curve’ is a natural decline in optimism which thankfully picks up again. Learning to embrace this stage of life is key.
